Each year, 50% of Americans over the age of 18 develop a musculoskeletal injury; However, only 30% of these patients utilize physical therapy services that their insurance company authorizes. Physical therapy is expensive, inaccessible, and ineffective. Spark is a platform that helps physical therapists engage with their patients, both in the office, and at home. Using a intelligent wall-mounted projector, spark can overlay interactive physical therapy exercises tailored to the user’s preferences. Overtime, users can provide real-time feedback about their pain levels during each exercise, allowing the system to create more effective routines. Using this data, the system can help improve patient’s form, and movement. Through the power of telemedicine, physical therapists can access and communicate with the user on progress, performance, and pain levels, drastically reducing the cost of physical therapy.
